EGROES WANT 
SIXTH MISSOURI 



According to Iho press dinpalchos 
from Washington, seventy thousand 1 
men are named to volunteer their 
service for the regular army. Every 
effort la being made to facilitate mat- 
ters in getting this number under arms 
at u early a data as possible. It U 
also stated it in the drain; of the War 
Department that the** incu should be 
single and between .the ages of eight ' 
eon and forty; should have do depend- 
nta, and who are no'l engaged id pro- 
sssions, business. or trade* vitally nfte- 
saary to the prosecution of the war. 
The recruits enlisting uuder this call 
will receive thirty dollar* • a hwnth in 
addition to elothing, food, 'medical at- 
tention and educational sjlvantngo*. 
■ Owing to the faer>1a« ennse.ription 

Kea are from twenty-one to thirty in- 
isiie; this call seema.to deny tKfe 
Negrp the right to voluateer his aerv- 
Bincc the four Negro regiments 
in the regular army have been filled, 
and these seventy thousand men are to 
be raised before the conscripts ere se- 
lected, it ia evident the Negro is not 
included in 'this call. rf 

Draft July Fourth 
It wa* t ho plan of the army ufficisls 
to fii July first as. t,hc day for actual 
drafting of the men who were con- 
scripted June- fifth, but owing to the 
amount of work involved and details 
I to be arrangeii, the date ho* own post- 
d to July fourth.- If on that day 
j Negroes are drafted in the service, 
they will not have been given a chance 
to. volunteer. 

Jews EBsent Discrimination 

In their <|uest for recruits for the 

Fifth Missouri Regiment, a meeting 

was arranged tn be held at Temple 

Snare K.n.-th. This meeting was rtes- 

„., ignated tiy the promoters as a "Jewiah

found excusoa to be absent- Aiming 
those were Louis P, Aloe, President of 
the Board of Aldermen of this city; 
Rabbi Harrison, of Temple Israel, and 
lir. Sales himself. The meeting ""• " 
flat fail me, there being only about 
thirty five present, most of whoni werei 
women and children, 'and no recruits 
were secured. This is considered a 
•■Block Kyi'" to those who are trying 
to carry racial prejudices and discrim- 
inations into the army. 

NEGRO NATIONAL GUARD' 
Negn-is throughout the state of Mis 
un ha^e becohie much disturbed 
■litre the publication in the Arguu last 
of the article calling attentioo 
the fact that "OO.nftO young Col

denied the right to offer their eerv- 
like- other men." They feel keenly 
taint of conscription, whi'eli will

AFTER SCHOOC WHAT? 

A nice looking group and an intelligent class of graduates re- 
ceived their diplomas at Sumner High School last week. The par- 
ents and friends of these pupils sat with beating hearts as they 
witnessed the closing exercises and saw their love ones perform, 
certain tasLs in further evidence of having finished the prescribed 
course laid down by the Hoard of Education. They finished their 
wurk. they departed for their several homes, midst compliments 
and congratulations; many of themTiaving already selected the Col- 
lege where they expect to enter in pursuit of higher education. 
This is all good and well, but there are those who-wiil meet many 
discouraging words. They will be told that it is of no use to try to 
go farther; they will be told that the sacrifice is too great. The fin- 
ancial problem will be magnified before them, the voice of their 
teacher, who had so often told them to go higher, will become 
faint to their ears and finally some of that class will d is pair, will 
close their eyes to their own possibilities and write their own de- 
feat. 

To the youth who may think that he cannot go farther in his 
or her pursuit of higher education, we will say that the world is fall 
of those who can make or give excuses, the road' on which 
you are to travel is crowded and competition along any line that 
you are able to pursue is keen. 

There is room at the top. There never was a greater demand 
for men and women who really know something. Men fully quali- 
fied to fill two and three thousand dollar positions are hard to find 
The'iovernment, as well as many private institutions, are always' 
looking for capable men and women; 

If there is any one in the class that graduated last week who 
is inclined to- be satisfied, we will say again: you are the architect 
of your own fortune; your successor failure rests with yourself. 
Climb higher, thtra it room at t ho top. 



WHAT WILL THE GOVERNMENT DO?, 

We told the story last week .of the possibility of the Negroes- 
who were registered June the fifth, being actually drafted into ser- 
vice of the United States Army, without being given a chance to 
volunteer their services in defense of their country. 

-We have since that time tried to solace ourselves with the 
thought, and hope, that the war department at Washington would 
not further try to humiliate her black subjects my placing, such a 
stigma upon them at this time. If the Negro had been given the 
opportunity to volunteer his services, and by his indifference or lack 
of interest in the safety of the nation in a crisis, refused to heed 
the solicitations of the goverment. as did all the other races, then 
to conscript him and draft him would have been the right and just 
thing for the government to do. But he has not been given that 
chance, he wants the samechanoe, of* freedom in selecting any 
branch of the army, as other men. He does not think that the 
death of a sailor is too severe for him to die;, be does not think that 
the death of a marine or aviator is too severe for him to die. Ac- 
cording to Washington dispatchse, it is the intention of trfe war de- 
partment to' start drafting about July first, still there has been no 
. opportunity given the many thousand men and youth of the Negro 
race to volunteer to dotheir bit. 

Surely somebody has made a mistake. Such discriminations 
on the part of the national government are painful. They cut deep., 
theyteavea wound that is-not easily healed. 

We had no chance to escape the conscription. We were re- 
quired by law to register just as. all other men in the prescribed 
ages. Now we want the same chance to volunteer our services as 
other are begged to do. 



WAR TALK. 



With England facing defeaf within eight months, F ranee al- 
ready on its last legs, Russia talking separate peace. Japan inac- 
tive, and Mexico feeling revengeful, it seems now certain that the 
war 1 cloud is the 'heaviest over the head of the United States. 



All of this talk from some of the highest officials about the 
United States being in this war for humanity's sake, and on ac- 
count of our high sense for the loye of right and justice; reminds 
us of what Abraham Lincoln the great emancipator said: 'You 
cannot fool all the -people all the time." ' ' '"* „ 



CRIME CONDEMNED. 

There seems' to be no excuse for the assault and murder of 
seven year old little Pearl Newbold last Sunday by Walter Diggs. 
twenty-nine years old, only that he is a brutal man of brutal nature, 
low instinct and depraved mind. ,' . < . 

That Diggs U irrational is borne out by the fact that he made 
a very meager pretense at concealing the crime and the boIdneM 
ef his confession. .Yet is view of the fact that he has been respon- 
sible for his scts.in the past, be deserves condemnation en the per 
of public eonscieace, end the most severe pen»lty of the law .

Conditions In Pittsburgh doubtless 
bad a lot to do with the falling-off in 
Gibson's work In 1915 and 1S1& The 
PI rules were a bad club those years 
and,- without anything In particular W 
spur him on, the veteran naturally fell 
Into careless wnys. 

Playing with New York, Gibson sees 
a choBfCe to be with another pfnnatit 
winner. He was a great player just 
a few. years back. Naturally lie would 
not relish being merery a. coach of 
pitchers on a cinb tbat looms np as 
one of the greatest machines the game 
has known. Hence his rejuvenation. 

The old adage tbat they never come 
back In the world of sport holds good 
Aver most of the trait. Now and then 
there crops ap «n exception, Just to 
prove the soundness of the rule. Sach 
an exception Is George Gibson, old 
George, catcher of the Glints.

feuse. Let as, 
therefore, stop to 
realize the oece» 
alty of. laying the 
foundation for the 
temple of peace. 
This structure 
must be made up 
of Individual units 
'strong and resist- 
ful to Invasion. 
This strength de- 
penda large- 
ly upon assimila- 
tion of foodstuffs. 
Attention may be called to toe fact 
that 'starchy foods are more quickly 
and thoroughly digested In the secre- 
tions of the glands of the mouth than 
In any other part' of the digestive sys- 
tem. The digestion of starch always 
begins with the saliva. The proper 
mastication of starchy foods depends 
upon their being held in the .month 
long enough to permeate them thor- 
oughly with ptysjin. If the starch is 
swallowed without being sntoiated In 
the mouth It passee on thr^_gh the 
stomach proper Into wbat might be 
called the second stomach, where it* 
digestion Is again taken up, bat there 
Is no substance like the secretion* of 
thk- month. 

The expert, chemists are constantly 
testing the commercial substances sold 
as digestive agents, yet I never heard 
of any of then that would compare in 
digestive strength with the saliva of 
the mouth.. 

The Important lesson to ' maintain 
health in youth and old age Is the prop- 
er, digestion of the starchy foods by 
mixing them up with the saliva In the 
month and not swallowing them down 
until that takes place. This win pro- 
duce the chemical- condition necessary 
for It to be taken up and circulated 
through tbe body and give strength to 
It along with that given by meats, 
lit'ana and fats. • 

The following represent some of Hie 
starches to be well masticated and 
mixed with the saliva before swallow- 
fag; Potatoes,- corn, rye, hominy, rice, 
white, bread, toast macaroni, bananas, 
crack'ers. all cereal breakfast foods,- 
tapioca, arrowroots, sage, back wheat, 
barley and parsnips. ' '

' Faith In Christ 

imellus was a very sincere tnan, 
■g the very best he knew how. not 
sincerity was not sufficient

it If any mnn had whereof he might

man for he had conviction of 
which led him to sorrow for his 
A rending of the tenth chapter of 
show he had a (treat desire 
■ii.v of salvation. Be was 
also, we are told, n roan of great piety, 
which showed Itself In ureal reverence 
and much IIt>ern1ity in the way of 
alms giving. To crown It all he was 
a man given to much prayer. But his 
piety, reverence, prayer or even his 
repentance was not sufficient to. give 
him salvation. Sincerity of purpose 
•nd Christianity are not synonymous: 
religion and Christianity - are not 
synonymous. None of these things 
whieh are- so much thought of as be- 
ing necessary for salvation ran ever 
take the place of simple faith In Jesus 
Christ. The- Bible does not say "who- 
soever ' repeote'th tiiid Is reverent and 
prays and has a desire to be saved, or 
Is sincere, shall find remission of sins." 
It does say most distinctly that "who- 
soever belleveth In him' shall receive' 
remission of alna.^ ^ 

■fth In Christ 8uffld*nt for Salvation, 
The thief upon [he. cross could not 
down and undo what he had done, 
make restitution of any kind, nor 
mid be come down from the cross 
and live a good life, but he could ex- 
ercise faith In Christ, and this was suf- 
ficient for his salvation, Nlcodemus 
had everything which wonld recom- 
mend him as worthy at salvation, but 
.his morality and rectitude of character 
left htm dead 111 trespasses and In sins 
until he exercised simple faith In 
Christ. When Paul speaks to the 
brutal Roman Jailer of PhlllppI be say* 
nothing of reformation of life, but tells 
him ' simply to "hell eve on the Lord 
Jesus Christ and thnn shalt be saved." 
When Philip finds Nathaniel engaging 
In prayer, he does not tell him to pray 
harder or longer, bat brings him to 
Christ The Holy Spirit declares in 
Romans 4:5. "but to him that worketh 
jot, but belleveth on hlm'that Jostl- 
fleth the ungodly, his faith Is. counted 
for righteousness." The • Gospel • of 
John has.been written "that we might 
believe that Jesns Is the 1 Christ, the 
Son of Hod. and that believing; we 
micftt have life in his nsme." While 
fslth In Christ Is absolutely neces- 
sary for .salvation. It la entirely suffi- 
cient. 

Faith In Christ Open to' AH. 
Our text does not pick out any par- 
ticular class which may have faith in 
Christ', but it uses- the widest word 
Jjosslble and says, "whosoever believ- 
iatb In him shall receive remission o£ 
■Ins." This wide-. word Is .used 
.throughout all of Scripture. Ianlnh 
sMys, "Ho. every one that thlrsteih." 
John 3 il« declares. "Thut Rod so loved 
the world that he gave his only he- 
fotteti piin. that whosoever belleveth 
In him should not perish, but hsve e.ver- 
lastlng lire." Unmans 1:18 declares 
that the Gospel of Christ "Is the power 
•f Qod"unlo snlvstkwi to everyone that 
fealievBth." . And the Rlhle closes with 
.the broad invlintiim fur whosoever will 
to come. . No one Is shut .nit. Faith In 
flirlst is the simplest thing In the 
world. It Is absolutely necessary, but 
Wholly- sufficient for salvation.

LESSON FOR JUNE 24 



REVIEW-Read John !1:IS-SS. 

GOLDEN TEXT— Theee are written. 
that you might believe that Jesua Is thi 
Christ, .the Bon Of Ood; and that believ- 
ing re BtlaM have Ufa throush hla name. 
—John J0:IL 

There are a variety of methods to 
be followed In reviewing the work, of 
the past bIe -months ond to give 
rlety. Teachers of dosses, or super- 
intendents 1 of schools, may select one 
or combine several, as their Judgment 
dictates. 01 course, the cnslcst way 
la to, procure a good speaker who la 
familiar with' the Gospel of John and 
the lessons of the past quarter, and 
let him bring out In the review Its 
most outstanding and salient .features. 

Que method would be to hnwe one- 
minute talks either by members of the 
class or persons selected Irom 
school. Each of twelve scholars could 
be assigned one minute, each to ha 
one of the lessons of the past quar> 
ter. 

Another good way wonld be to. take 
the outstanding nnd significant veVses 
from the lessons of the quarter, not 
the golden text, hut verses which i 
to emphasise the outstanding features 
of the six months' work. "Behold the 
Lamb of God," (Ch. 1:36): "Ye must 
he born again." (3_:T) ; "Come see a 
man which foldjne 'all things that ever 
I did; is not this the Christ?" (4 :2P) : 
"Verily, verily I sny unto you. he that 
'henreth my word and belleveth on him 
that sent me. hntb everlastinc life nnd 
shall not. come into condemnation but 
Is passed from death unto life." (!>: 
24). "I must work. the works of him 
fnnt sent me while It is day : tbe night 
cometh when no man can work." 
■ Another method of runlew would be, 
particularly In the adult classes 
have each lesson wiih its present-day 
emphasis. For instance, the post quar- 
ter: Lesson 1— The Christian, in his 
dealing with blindness. Lesson 2 — 
Modern wonders of healing and medi- 
cal missions- Lesson 3— The shep- 
herding of church members. Lesson 4 
— Do wp know how to give? Lesson 6 
—Is Christ supreme In our national 
Jtfe? Lesson 9— Ambition and Its cure. 
lesson 7— The world's good springing 
from Christ. Lesson 8— Temperance 
reform. Lesson B — The Holy Splrlt ( '1n 
everyday, life. Lesson 10— -How 'Christ 
Is betrayed, and denied today. . Lesson 
11 — The upllftlnK power of the cross. 
Lesson 12— Wh y men believe In im- 
mortality. 

A good method of review would be 
to have someone take up each of the 
golden texts, announcing it In advance 
that pupils may be prepared for this 
method, The teacher would write the 

texts of the quarter, each on a "sepa- 
rate, piece of cardboard, nnd lay them 
face down an a table: pupils would 
then draw the golden texts, one at a 
UnrfTand tell what the lesson is to 
which this texir belongs,, giving as full 
an account of the lesson as possible. 
the teacher Helping out with questions 
where necessary. 

It will be of great value to the pu- 
pils' If they can get In this review* 
clear outline of the main events of 
Christ's last weeks upon earth, cov- 
ered particularly by the past quarter. 
There are forty standing' events of 
the past quarters: (1) The healing. of 
the nun born blind : (2) Jesus the good 
Shepherd ; (3) Jesus sending forth the 
seventy; (4) Jesns In Berea; (5) The 
raising of Lazarus: (H) The ten lep- 
ers healed ; (7) Bnrtimaeusat Jericho: 
48) Jesus visits ZaccBeus; ; (B) Jesua 
anointed by ilnry: (10) The -Be tree; 
(11) Triumphal entry: [12) -CTennlng 
the temple;- (13) Weeping over Jeru- 
salem; (14) The widow's mite; (IK) 
The Greeks seek Jesus; (1(t) Prepara- 
tion for ihe passover: H7) Wn'shlng 
(he disciples' feet; (18) The Lord's 
sapper; (10) The farewell discourse: 
(20) The. farewell -prayer: (CI) The 
agony In Gethseranria : (22) Jndas be- 
trays Jesus; (23) The arrest of Je- 
sus'; (24) Peter denies Jesus; («0) 
Jesns before Ananias; (2fl) .Jesus be- 
fore Cnlphas: (2D Jeans before the 
Sanhedrih; (28) The mocking of jJe- 
sus-f^tao) Jesus before llfate; (30) 
Jeans before Herod; (31) Pilate con- 
demns Jesus; (S2) The sorrowful 
wait; (33) The. crucifixion ; (M) Tlte 
seven last words; (35) Jesus dies; 
(36),Bnrinl; £37) Resurrection: [38) 
Appears to Mary; (30) Appearance 
during the forty ditys; (40) The aa: 
cension. 

As brought out. heretofore. John 
nrXf. forth the purpose of this <>«apel.! 
namely, that "Jesus la the Christ.. the 
"Son of Ood, and that believing on him 
we might have, everlasting life, eternal 
life In his nnme." (See' golden text).
